Over the Rainbow
Perf. Frank Sinatra
Album: Frank Sinatra - The Tribute Collection Vol. 1

Duet Music
(P) and (C) Licenced from Lafayette Music Group


(Intro)
When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane
 
When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your windowpane
 
To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

(Main melody)
Somewhere, over the rainbow,
way up high,
There's a land that I've heard of
once in a lullaby.

Somewhere, over the rainbow,
skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true.

Someday I wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
My troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere, over the rainbow,
bluebirds fly,
Birds fly over the rainbow,
why then, oh why can't I?

(instrumental)

(backing singers:)
When all the world is a hopeless jungle
and the raindrops tumble all around
There's an open-to-magic place

(Frank:)
To a place behind the sun,
Just a step behind the rainbow

Somewhere, over the rainbow,
bluebirds fly,
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?
